LA VERBENA DE LA PALOMA
La verbena de la Paloma is one of the greatest zarzuelas of all the genre. Bretón composed this score in only nineteen days. He wrote: "I composed in the cafés, the taverns, even on benches in the street.” It was an enormous and instantaneous success. Since then, it has been performed countless times in Spain and America.
